What does life look for you now?

Right now I'm nearing the end of Year 12 and I am 17. It is my final few days, and is giving me much to reflect on and to hope for. School has taught me much about friendships, and how to be supportive to each-other. I also feel confident to forge my own path without too much reliance on others, but know that the best way to learn is to ask questions. Hope to stay in touch with a few close friends, but also am keen to meet many new ones. Excited for the future, satisfied with the past. #no (well...not many) regrets!

Tell us what you are passionate about?

I love being artistic and creative. Playing ukulele, reading and birdwatching.

When you were young, what were you hoping to be when you grew up?

I have always wanted to be an astronaut, however, my lack of maths as a subject deems this... a difficult aspiration to follow. I think I would like to become a teacher, museum curator or work in DFAT.

What is your favourite Radford moment?

My art class had the most hilarious moments together; too many to count. I think the New Zealand trip, Timor Trip, G-trip and Art trip to Bundanon would be among my favourite moments as I really strengthened my connections with people and learnt many things along the way.

Do you have a particular role model or inspirational figure from Radford or now?

Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Kidston have been role models for me due to their patience with every student and ability to be unconditionally supportive. They are impressive women that I strive to be like. Most teachers at Radford have served as great role models for my future. Also, Ms. Brooks brief (3 month) period of teaching literature was a god send.

Where are you now?
